Panic! At The Disco sent fans into a frenzy after releasing a teaser video on the band's Instagram story that showed frontman Brendon Urie getting ready for something—literally. Now the band have taken things one step further by sending fans cryptic packages containing bottles of “Unholy Water.”
Fans have been anxiously awaiting March 19 after the teaser video seemed to emphasize the time “3:19” on the clock in the bottom corner. Theories were quickly made in regards to what would be happening that day with most fans believing the date to be the release of a new single.
But now, Sinners have a new date to ponder over.
Starting yesterday, fans began receiving envelopes in the mail from a P.O. box in Los Angeles. Inside the envelope is a white bottle of “Unholy Water” ( yes, there's actual water in it) which says “Pray for the W!cked” in gold lettering and a time (or date) of 3:21.
One fan's package found its way to the doorstep of her grandmother, and grandma wasted no time in figuring things out for herself.
After putting the address in Google, a tweet popped up that had shared the address as the destination for Brendon Urie's fan mail to be sent.
You go grandma!

More and more fans have started receiving the bottle, all of which have ordered something from the P!ATD website.

Now fans have redirected their theories, wondering if the suspected dates actually relate to bible verses instead.

One thing is for sure, P!ATD are going above and beyond with subtle and cryptic promotion. Fans in Cleveland were handed these black and white cards after a nothing,nowhere show a few days ago.

Zack Hall gave a subtle hint to the numbers “319” with a post on his Instagram story.
Last month, Urie said the band's sixth album was recorded and in the mixing stages. Plus, he treated fans to a tiny taste of something new.
When a fan asked to hear something from the upcoming album, Urie began to explain that as much as he would love to do that it might get him into a little trouble with the powers that be. Then, being the rebel that he is, Urie decided that letting fans hear one note couldn't hurt, proceeding to play about two seconds of a new song featuring him hitting a high A to B.
P!ATD haven't made any official announcements about their sixth album, but hopefully it won't be too long before we get to hear the new tunes. Death Of A Bachelor released Jan. 15, 2016, and was Panic's first album to hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. It also was nominated for the Best Rock Album Grammy in 2016.
